When looking through Travis Geny's portfolio, the constant theme is his striking use of light. Whether shooting under the evening sky a blooming field or on the streets of Portland, Travis finds splashes of sun that accentuate his clients' beauty. This attention extends to his boudoir sessions, where light filtered through gossamer curtains gives skin a soft glow. It can also be seen in sessions with families, engagement parties, and dachshunds posing for corporate head shots. Travis's expertise covers a range of casual and professional needs, from families looking to make a memory to aspiring models showing off the latest fashions. He can freeze your photons either in his studio or on location at a scenic locale of your choice.
This quote by Elsie De Wolfe sums up the mission of self-taught photographer Monique Marie, "I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life." To this end, Marie puts extra effort into making her subjects feel beautiful, particularly during boudoir sessions in which she stresses comfort, safety, and privacy. She employs a duo of makeup artists who enhance each boudoir client's features, and she boasts a voluminous knowledge of poses that help each client feel their best. She also revels in the beauty of weddings, engagements, and babies learning how to smile or say "Gruy?re" for the first time.
Though they began as hobbies, art and photography had become focal points for Amanda Lindahl-Lemke by college. After six years studying both subjects stateside—with a stint at art school in Florence, Italy, in between—Amanda made the leap to the pros with A. Lindahl Creations. Whether clicking away in her studio or on location, she primarily photographs newborns and children, all adorably posed in color and black-and-white prints that subvert expectations through her use of props and surreal backdrops. Before her sessions even begin, Amanda discusses expectations and aesthetic preferences with her clients and takes time to forge bonds with each child, expectant mother, or family she photographs. The warm, hands-on approach earned her the "Friendliest Family Photographer" spot in "Red Tricycle’s" Totally Awesome Awards, which led to "Blue Tricycle’s" subsequent Even More Awesomer Than Your Awards Awards: No Tag-Backs Edition. After their shoot, clients can share a private online gallery with family and friends or peruse it for the images they want to preserve as prints.
Natalia Lux Amari, owner of Lia Lux Photography, believes that every person's unique beauty deserves to be captured in a beautiful photograph. She strives to do just that, bringing the empathy of a trained social worker as well as the eye of a professional photographer to her work. While she busily captures her clients' beauty, she does her best to keep the world beautiful, too: she partners with Friend of Trees to plant a tree for every new client that comes to her; she uses environmentally-friendly materials to create photo albums; and she even runs a paperless studio, using technological tools for accounting and making paper airplanes.
